weather and conditions


Sun, then fog in the middle (~3000) and then cloudy.


Conditions were not good, and difficoult to believe, because there was too much snow. About 1 meter of fresh snow at the top and it was near impossible to slide down much of the way. The snow was not stable enough to do the grand anverse.
No trace at all and a bit of fog in the middle, we join a group of Spanish with a gps tracker to find the way in the fog.

personal comments

Not the conditions to do it, I will try it again with less fresh snow and when the train to go back to Chamonix is working. We had to walk back to Chamonix.
